WACO - The Bakery at the Silos opened Wednesday at Sixth Street and Webster Avenue, providing a touch of sweetness and another dose of appeal to a corner already drawing tourists from every corner of the nation to experience Chip and Joanna Gaines’ Magnolia Market at the Silos. To no one’s surprise, the shop with hardwood floors, high ceilings and plenty of goodies had the masses standing in line for entry, even in the late-afternoon heat. Employees handed out small cards and tiny pencils that customers could use to mark their choices among cupcakes, baked goods, drinks and Magnolia Flour T-shirts priced at $26. Fans of “Fixer Upper” on HGTV, in which the Gaineses turn the ugly duckling of a neighborhood into a swan, know Joanna’s affinity for shiplap. So why not offer a cupcake with the same moniker? At $3.50, a Shiplap cupcake features vanilla cake and vanilla buttercream icing.
